Can anyone recommend an engine builder in Northern CA? Specifically in the Vacaville area. I'm looking to re-build my 350 w/ some mild performance (350HP). Or am I better off just getting a GM crate engine?
In Sac there is a place called HotRod Heaven (something close) I know they specialize in modern lt1 & ls1 engines but they may have a recomendation if they don't want to take on the work. Ralph is the owner...
Here in SJ I highly recomend Victory Automotive...
Hey Big Bob
I would highly recomend Bailey Brothers in Vallejo, actually half way between Napa and Vallejo on hiway 29, I have had 2 small block Chevys and 2 big block Chevys done by them and I still have one small block and a big block they did and they run great, I would go back to them again, Check them out.
Gene, it sounds like Bailey Brothers may be the hot ticket and their local! Any idea what the cost is to have a small block built?
I'm probably going to be starting from scratch as I don't have much faith in rebuilding my engine.
The last engine Bailey Bros. did was the 427 that I have in my 69 Chevelle SS396,about 4 years ago,I think I spent about $4,500 but they did everything to it and put it together and it's fairly healthy. You could spend $2,000 or more depending on what you want,take what you have to them see whats good and whats not, then talk with Fred Bailey about what you want to do.
Do you ever go to car shows and show & shines around the north bay area, What do ya drive?????
